Welcome to Pete's Web Site     |   home
                    
My internship site sponsors this race.  Over 15 athletes from around the world participated this year and raced over 250 miles in 5 days from Fairbanks to Anchorage.  To give you perspective - this is on par with completing two 26 mile marathons each day.  My specific job was to drive a support car for Bogdon Krol - an awesome racer from Poland.  With the help of a French assistant - Remi - and a Polish/English dictionary, we had a blast and captured a hard-fought battle for third place.  Below are some pix from our fantastic week. To see racer profiles and specific results - go to the Challenge Alaska Website (www.challenge.ak.org)
